ElDorado National California, or ENC, announced the first order for six Axess battery-electric buses (BEB), to First Transit, for operation at Emory University in Atlanta.
The new buses will join an existing ENC fleet of 36 low-floor shuttle buses that has successfully served the university for over 10 years.
The university recently joined Race to Zero, a coalition of educational institutions devoted to achieving zero carbon emissions. This fleet of ENC Axess BEB buses will help Emory in its drive toward creating a more sustainable campus.
Introduced in late 2021, the ENC Axess BEB is built on the proven Axess platform, which has over 20 years of trusted performance. Available in 40-, 35- and 32-foot lengths, the Axess BEB is purpose built for every transit and shuttle application. It has integrated a Cummins battery-electric system utilizing up to 518 kWh of the new BP74E battery packs and backed by Cummins’ worldwide network of trained service and support technicians.
As with ENC’s conventional fueled models, the Axess BEB is available with an optional 304 grade stainless steel body structure for high corrosion markets. The Axess was purposely designed for charging flexibility including plug-in, overhead, and in-ground inductive charging. ENC also offers multiple configurations for passenger seating and wheelchair accommodations to meet the exacting needs of its customers. Its versatility makes the ENC Axess BEB an ideal mobility solution for transit, airport, university, and other high-demand applications.
Creative Bus Sales finalized the sale in December 2021.
